Sunderland boss Di Canio admits plans to sell Brown

Sunderland boss Paolo di Canio admits he wanted to sell Wes Brown last summer.

The defender has struggled with injury for the past 12 months.

"It was the same with Wes Brown," said Di Canio when discussing a recall for Lee Cattermole.

"He is a fine centre-half who I wanted to move on but he was determined to prove me wrong and he came back in pre-season to impress me and was on the bench last week."
